Research Interests

  • I investigate applications of classroom technology for secondary education STEM teachers.
  • I study the development of preconditioning methods for iterative solution of linear systems. Most recently I have focused on saddle point problems, which occur in optimization problems and applications to fluid and solid mechanics.
